What to do, what to do, what to do? - August 5th 2015, 12:31 PM

I am the captain of an assignment for one of my subjects, major work, something like a quarter of my grade. We have to make regular meetings for the assignment to work, but the thing is, no one is available for a meeting. It is literally impossible to get everyone together for a meeting, like it is not going to happen. I have a very flexible timetable because I don't work and I consider Uni to be a large commitment, however, my teammates are hugely unavailable.

One guy told me four hours a week, one guy told me one hour a week.

I resorted to alternatives. I tried Google Docs but that was kind of stupid because this is an assignment that requires face to face conversation and real time planning. So, I go to Google Hangout. I ask everyone when they are available and again, some very restrictive times and it became clear that there was no way to get everyone online at the same time. The most flexible guy was available any time after 8:00PM tonight, saying he will leave his email open for the link to the Hangout. I send him a reply saying that I will send him something at 8:15PM.

It's 10:00PM and he still hasn't responded to my invitation.

What do I do about this?

I need a fucking Aspirin.

EDIT: HAHAHAHA, WOW, I have never had to edit so much ranting LOL . .

This is the most difficult and frustrating parts of college. Do your best to work with the time you have, meet with who you can when you can even if you can't get everybody at every meeting, divide up the work and communicate to make sure it makes sense, and talk to the instructor sooner rather than later if it's proving absolutely impossible. That's really all you can do.
